Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reported on Sunday that guard Stephen Neal, will miss tonight's game and will join Jarrad Page on the inactive list.

According to the report the Patriots also announced that Fred Taylor, and nose tackle Myron Pryor will miss the game.

Neal was reportedly limited this week with a shoulder injury, but apparently it's bad enough where he'll have to be held out.  With his absence, it's likely that Dan Connolly (who didn't play as much last week during Logan Mankins first game back) will probably fill in for Neal at the right guard position.

Another player's status that fans will likely be curious about will be safety Patrick Chung, who is expected to be a game time decision.  Chung had missed two games with a knee injury, but sounded upbeat this week telling Rapoport, "Oh, it’s way better."
